Nikolai Przhevalsky Museum, Karakol

#2 of 16 in Museums in Kyrgyzstan
Specialty Museum Museum
Learn about a great Russian geographer who first described Central Asia when you visit Nikolai Przhevalsky Museum, a neo-classical single-story building detailing the life of the explorer who died of typhoid fever on the shores of Issyk-Kul. Opened in 1957, the museum features sketches of local peoples, engravings, and books with details of Przhevalsky's expeditions shown on a bas relief map of Central Asia. A huge globe, an armillary sphere, and a stuffed horse, presumably having belonged to the scientist, are among top exhibits. A live horse is kept in a museum yard under white birch trees. The balcony offers a scenic panorama of nearby ponds. Przhevalsky is buried in the museum's courtyard.
